Re-Designing My Living Room

So my living room is now a mess cause I have been busy designing it. I’ve been reorganizing, repacking, rearranging, pretty much re-anything! Pictures are on there way I promise! I’ve been looking for inspiration and I think I found it while looking at one of my favorite sites, Houzz.com
